This particular release also comes attached with a special edition shoebox that sees the OG-style packaging in white and volt, while a pre-worn aesthetic is applied via the cracked leather on the collar and the faded laces - perhaps a precursor to the upcoming Reimagined Air Jordan 1s. Even in sports, I view it through the lens of community, not competition. The parallel path creates visual continuity between the shoe and the closely connected Nike Zoom Alphafly Next. Aside from the color treatment on these Jordan 36s, this upcoming release features a serious taco mascot with a Swoosh logo mimicking Tatum's signature eyebrows.

La Flame's now-signature backwards swoosh on the lateral side reprises its role, while University Red flair animate branding on the top of the tongue and upper heel overlays. You also see distinct consideration in the retro lines' extended sizing for women and kids, and in how Jordan designers think differently about the silhouettes' methods of build. The shoe's details also relay the creative process in the finished product. The hand of the designer is apparent - seen in elements like the N.354 logo treatment and overt stitching.

Ateneo de Manila University, located in Quezon City, Philippines, seeks to embody, enrich and uplift Filipinos and Philippine culture and contribute to the development of the nation. Replete with his taste for the militaristic, the pair featured the usual Cactus Jack branding as well as a utilitarian cargo pocket at the ankle. The Egyptian theme continues in 2019 with the Khepri. An Egyptian solar diety represented by the scarab beetle, Khepri, the god of creation, is associated with resurrection - explicitly known for rolling the sun above the horizon each morning and carrying it through the other Nike Off White world after sunset.

The family tree of Air Jordan 1s as well those of other sportswear icons has added a lot of new members in recent years, primarily Off White x Nike due to the brand's mission to explore new creations specifically for women. Modifications both minor and extensive have given the Air Jordan 1 some fresh new identity, and the most recent exploration into the platformed Elevate trim has shown plenty of promise for its adherence to the OG design and selective colorways.

And in between - during October, specifically - we can expect to see the shoe in a Winterized, Archaeo Brown setup. To finally embark upon that moment was surreal. The Air Jordan 1 saw its first-ever Flyease entry back in late 2019, opening a brand new Off-White x Air Force 1 opportunity for physically challenged individuals to enjoy one of the most popular lifestyle shoes on the market. Since that first drop, the Jumpman has unleashed a series of colorways with the easy-entry modification, and it's finally arriving in a summer-ready low-top format.
